Notes from the Maker:
Our first rye whiskey with this distinguished of an age statement.
The mashbill features a slightly spicy, yet approachable, rye resulting in an elegantly complex taste profile and a golden honey hue. This light, yet full-flavored, rye is sure to please any palate.
Serving neat, with a drop of water, or on the rocks opens up all of the flavors that were developed from ten years of aging, such as spice, oak, caramel, and tobacco. At 80 proof, this rye can be easily enjoyed without the burn associated with higher-proof whiskeys.
Color: Golden Honey
Aroma: Sweet vanilla and oak with a touch of light fruit
Taste: Approachable spice and oak notes with hints of caramel
Finish: Faint tobacco and warm cinnamon heat
"Floral notes of violets meet heaps of spices: allspice, cloves, and nutmeg. The oak is right in your face, but not overwrought, woven with vanilla and cedar. The flavor shows good maturity, with leather, lanolin, and wax crayons, before more drying oak and spices bring it to a close." - Whisky Advocate
